May The Good Lord Bless him and his family through the coming years and let him take wise/experienced decisions on running the KSD to Lord''s Glory..

    I most delighted to know that Rev. Dr. John, Stephen Sadananda has been elected Bishop of The Church of South India. I join scores of people all over India and abroad in congratulating Bishop Stephen. Obviously the choice has fallen on the right man.... Bishop Stephen is person of name and fame known for his piety and resourcefulness.

    I was very friendly with one of his predecessors Bishop Furtado a person of great qualities of heart and mind and I had free access to his house any time. Some years ago prior to my visit to U.S.A. he and his wife visited me with gifts of cashew nuts etc. to be taken to my children in America. It occurs to me that Bishop Stephen is walking in the footsteps of former Bishop Furtado.

    I also see many individuals addressing Bishop Stephen as Ayya and indeed he must be Ayya. Bishop Stephen.. may your tenure be a long, happy and fruitful one. May The Good Lord bless you and your work. My good wishes will always be with you. Joe Gonsalves
